Antioxidant Capacity of a Bee Pollen Sample Obtained from Giresun, Turkey

Hüseyin ŞAHİN [1] , Mehmet KEMAL [2]


This study was related to evaluating the antioxidant of one pollen sample which was collected from Giresun, Turkey. The antioxidant properties of this sample were determined to use total phenolic contents (TPCs), total flavonoid contents (TFCs), proanthocyanidin contents (PCs), and ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) assays. The mean of the total phenolic content was 6.33±0.11 mg GAE/ g sample, total flavonoid content was 1.88±0.11 mg QE/g sample, proanthocyanidin content was 0.86±0.00 mg CE/g sample, FRAP was also 72.38±0.21 µmoL FeSO4.7H2O/g, respectively. The obtaining results revealed that the pollen could be seen as a valuable natural source thanks to its significant antioxidant capacity.
